Weather in Athens

Best time to visit

Most visitors pass through Athens during peak holiday season between July and August, many en-route to the islands. While summer nightlife is in full swing with open-air bars, clubs and concerts, and beaches open for bathing, it can also be very hot. It’s nicer to visit are between May and June or September and October, when the weather is warm and sunny, and attractions are not as crowded. Visit in low season (November-April) to experience Athens like a local. It may be too dull and chilly for sitting out, but the cultural scene will still be thriving.
